5.0 out of 5 stars 'Liberation', 27 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dikotter's survey of the first years of Communist rule in China is as explosive as his earlier book exposing the grim realities of Mao's famine. Meticulously researched and beautifully written, it shatters what was left of the myth of the 'golden age' of Communist rule in China, spelling out the gruesome costs in terms of lives lost, families destroyed and morals and manner corrupted thanks to 'Liberation', as the Party still insists on calling it. It is an immensely sad story -- a genuine 'tragedy' - but one that needed to be told to the world. It now has been in a way that, hopefully, enlightens us about the past and makes us think in a new way about China's current rulers.
